Caused the worst diarrhea I have had in 64 years. 15-20 trips per day, plus cramping. I would not take this again unless I were dying of something for which this was the only remedy.

Prescribed for tooth abscess.Might do its job; but, I will never know. I have been sick since pill 3 of 40. I want to vomit just to get this stuff out of my system.
